red and white tent

Oil on canvas – 150cm x 120cm

Otherness sketches

pen on paper

Drawing and sketching is something I like to do for its immediacy and freedom to play, plan or think outside of my usual focus. Planting mushrooms smack bang in the middle of the suburbs or in a Le Corbusier landscape is something which may never happen in a painting, but can happen in a drawing.
